Wow, really neat article! I'm baffled at the fact that it pulled on the jet for the first 400 meters. I wonder how many G's those cars pull in first gear :eek:

Anyone think the results would be much different if it was dry?

I reckon dry conditions would favour the car for a little longer, but once that plane starts moving it would be game over- as you'd expect.

Jets are very slow off the mark, considering they rely on thrust as apposed to direct drive from the wheels, even a Nissan skyline GTR or WRX would take most jet fighters over about 400m. It's beyond that when the jet will really take off...

Dale Earnhardt Jr could have beat that jet. They should have put a real driver in the car :D
